Oulaya's Wedding
OULAYAS WEDDING is an impressionistic account of love, family, gender roles and ecstatic music in the Sahara desert.  Its an intimate portrait of a family of wedding musicians, their court of extended friends and peripheral misfits, who are giving away their eldest daughters hand in marriage.  The film portrays the emotional and logistical maelstrom of a Sahraoui wedding.  Presented are candid and sincere accounts by the residents, hosts, guests and artists that make these weddings a foundation of Saharan culture in the city of Dakhla.  Group Doueh, the most beloved family band in the Western Sahara, are the main subject of this documentary. Sublime Frequencies co-founder Hisham Mayet and his team, were Doueh's personal guests and given unprecedented access to film and record the pageantry and stunning music of his daughter's traditional Sahraoui wedding.  The result is a film of warmth, humor and belonging through music in this remote and overlooked region in the midst of a rapidly changing Sahraoui culture . [Documentary, 58 min., Dir. Hisham Mayet with Cyrus Moussavi and Brittany Nugent].
